  • Student Experience Panel: Narrowing your Search
    Join four current Canadian students studying in the United States to learn about how they narrowed their university search. We will ask them questions like what resources did you use to narrow your search, how did you go about it, what qualities did you look for in a university, how did you tackle your essay supplements, and how did you ultimately choose? We will save plenty of time for attendees to pose questions to the group as well.

    Check out the awesome panelists below!

    The session will be recorded for those who cannot attend. Attendees will participate through the chat box only (No mic/camera access needed).
